    There are two of the same listing on the agencies site, one at 140000 and 150000 Euro. I’m not sure which is the correct price or if the 150000 has something else that comes with or what the deal is: https://www.selectionhabitat.com/uk/advertisement/sale-building-figeac-p-r7-120154930.html

      A same house can have different prices for several reasons:
      1) agent fees can differ
      2) if the seller lowers the price in one of the real estate agencies showing the property and forgets to do the same in the other agencies.

      But in this case it must be a typo because the agent has exclusive rights on this property and rightmove is just copying the listing.

    Wooooooow. That face. This would be amazing to see. I keep wondering what it smells like inside these places. What does a medieval building, (not the undercroft), SMELL like?

    That is wonderful! To own that type of history! A halftimber with some leaded glass, stone carvings, and that staircase with so much character. Wow. I would do precious little to it, other than shore things up and try to leave as much Medieval rawness as possible. Outstanding!

    I always wonder how easy it would be to find either someone to help restore or someone to restore something like that & how easy it would be to get the materials needed….

    So much history this house has witnessed..wars, celebrations, famines and plagues, the rise and fall of kingdoms, great artisans. Gives me shivers. I want to just touch the walls.

      You read my mind. As I was scrolling, I was thinking about how this one saw the Black Death, the Great Famine, and the Normans could have been invading England as this building was being constructed (Medieval Period is vague… could be it was built a century afterwards.) I generally get goosebumps over American homes built before the American Revolution. ***This place saw the Crusades.*** More than one of them.

      This one could have made an ex-pay out of me if I had more ready funds and wasn’t needed here. I am completely in love.

    Looking at all the stairs, I understand why the French shop a little everyday! Bringing in the groceries takes on a whole new meaning. It looks like it was being updated (no interior wall). I wonder what shape the bathrooms and kitchen are in???

    1875 Limestone house
    Langeais, Loire Valley,

    Streetview here: https://goo.gl/maps/zqgUGjv3THQ2
    But just wander the streets at random, even if the smaller ones are not available in Streetview, at least there are a few blue bullet points for 360° photos. This town is so medieval, so rich in different styles of buildings.

    Also, note that the filler between the timber frame is not made of regular bricks, I think these look like Toulouse bricks: flater and wider than the usual bricks. You can see the difference here: http://www.toulouse-brique.com/brique.html

    I look at these amazing houses from the turn of the last century and swoon. Then I see a medieval mansion for less than 200k and It’s more than I can stand!

    But you are all probably tired of hearing me Swoon and faint. So instead I’ll just say: “Sigh”
